What is your budget? What features do you want/need? You should be looking at a 650 watt PSU with that setup.

Since the PSU is the 1 item in your whole build which affects every item in your build it does pay to invest in the best quality one you can get. That said, any of the Gold 80+ or above from those mfgrs would suffice for your build.

I have a strong personal preference for Seasonic. Their stuff is really solid. I've built a large number of machines for friends, coworkers, and even strangers (when trying to augment income). Never ever had a Seasonic PSU be an issue.

Currently running a Prime Titanium. Now of course the Titanium rating is pretty much silly, the difference between that and Platinum on the energy bill even here in eye-watering $/kWh CA is moot. But I wanted the best, and Because I Am Worth It.

I ran a Corsair 750W PSU based on a Seasonic 750W PSU for 8 years, 24/7, with overclocked hardware, it didnt miss a beat and is still serviceable.
It was replaced with a Seasonic Prime Ultra Titanium 750W.
I expect a similar experience.

Dont mess about, get something decent with a long warranty. You get more stable power and better protection
Its cheap over the long term with no need to worry about harming your hardware and you get peace of mind
If you overclock, the PSU wont hold you back as long as you chose the power range correctly.

And as pointed out above, better efficiency will give you some $ back.

Pick a Seasonic 650w+ PSU with 80+ gold, platinum, or titanium, and the warranty length you desire and call it a day.
